Help With Soundbar 700 Remote Setup with Dish Hopper 3

Help please! I've spent hours trying to connect my Soundbar 700 Remote to my Dish Hopper 3.
I've tried every Dish* for a brand name as well as Echostar. I've tried Hopper 3 and the model number on the back for Echostar and nothing is working.
Has anyone successfully setup their universal remote to work with their Hopper 3?
Any help would be much appreciated!
TIA

Hello Ty&D,

 

Thank you for posting and welcome to the community.

 

I'm sorry to see you've been running into issues attempting to program your Bose remote to control your Dish Hopper 3, but I'll be happy to help.

 

The reason why you're unable to control it at this time is that the Dish Hopper 3 is set to be controlled using RF signals instead of IR. However, you can change this in the settings menu of your Dish Hopper to accept IR commands. 

 

Once you have the changed the settings to accept IR commands, I would suggest trying to reprogram the Bose remote.

 

Let us know if you have any other questions.

 

Kind Regards,
